  1. 1. On the modeling of large ratcheting strains and anisotropy in pearlitic steel

    Author : Göran Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Large strains; Plasticity; Anisotropy; Ratcheting; Kinematic hardening;

    Abstract : Thermodynamically consistent constitutive material models for describing the large strain response of polycrystalline metals are proposed. Emphasis is put on the multiaxial ratcheting under cyclic loading and the evolution of anisotropy in pearlitic steel. READ MORE

  2. 2. Modeling of plasticity at large strains

    Author : Mathias Wallin; Hållfasthetslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with various aspects of the constitutive modeling of plasticity. Both theoretical issues and issues related to the numerical implementation of the constitutive models are addressed. READ MORE

  3. 3. Constitutive Modeling of Large Ratcheting Strains in Carbon Steel

    Author : Göran Johansson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : A thermodynamically consistent constitutive materialmodel for describing the large strain response of polycrystallinemetals during cyclic loading is proposed. In particular, it isproposed to model experimentally observed large ratcheting strainsin rail steel by the classical Armstrong-Frederick evolution ruleand several back-stresses. READ MORE

  4. 4. Evolution of Anisotropy in Continua Exposed to Large Strains

    Author : Magnus Harrysson; Hållfasthetslära; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY;

    Abstract : This thesis deals with the modeling of anisotropic materials at finite deformations. The major emphasis is the development of constitutive models able to account for the evolving directionally dependent properties of these materials. In addition, the numerical implementation of the models developed is addressed. READ MORE

  5. 5. Modeling of Inelastic Response of Metals with Emphasis on Cyclic Viscoplasticity

    Author : Magnus Ekh; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : large strains; integration; anisotropy; plasticity; creep; viscoplasticity; kinematic hardening; metals; damage; calibration;

    Abstract : This thesis is concerned with the continuum modeling of the macroscopic behavior of engineering metals, in particular as part of life prediction strategies. Focus is primarily placed on the formulation and numerics of models for cyclic rate-dependent response. READ MORE
